Tips to Prevent Getting an Infectious Disease While on Vacation

Dr. Brent W. Laartz thought he was in for the ride of his lifetime when he set out on a horseback riding excursion in Costa Rica.

Admittedly younger and more naïve than he is today, Laartz – an infectious disease specialist and author of the book How to Avoid Contagious Diseases…

NOT using tradition as an excuse to NOT change anymore!

My post

http://tawnassecret.blogspot.com/2011/01/tradition-is-not-always-best-excuse.html

 

I have found that there have been many times in my past and present that I use the excuse of "tradition" to dictate my daily life.  This is something that I am desperately trying to change while entering in to my life of positive…

Chatting at the dentist office? Think twice

Yesterday, I sat sweating in a chair in the dentist's office. In the waiting room. Because I hate the dentist. Yes, I know. Bad. But I can't help it. I've tried to change. But I've had some negative experiences. However, I know how important the dentist is, and I'm fanatical about dental hygiene. So my kids go regularly. And they don't mind much at all.

They were both getting their teeth cleaned, and I was biding my time, taking deep breaths and reading fashion magazines.…

A Romantic Dinner at a Serious Discount - Restaurant.com

For many, going out for a romantic dinner on Valentine’s Day is a tradition but, what about if you made it a date night every month? Or even every week?

I am not talking about a steak’n cheese burrito at Carls Jr, but a wonderful meal with that special ambiance at perhaps your favorite dining establishment. No way you say? Well, if you go to…

The Little Moments

There are big moments in a parent's life. There are the firsts- first smile, first steps, first lost tooth. There are birthdays and graduations. There are photographs and video to commemorate these times. Hallmark has made a fortune from family milestones.



I enjoy the big moments but I live for the thousands of little moments... Like the one I'm having right now with my daughter, sitting on the couch watching re-runs of "The Office".



Everyone else is the house is sleeping… Continue

The Grandma Chronicles: Where Are the Side-Lanterns on my Car?

Have you ever done something wrong, but were afraid to admit it?  And to cover it up, did you pass the blame off on someone else?

In my grandmother’s day, a husband’s word was law.  I never knew my grandfather, who…

Do Follow or Not Do Follow

That is the question.

I’m not a technical blogger, but I follow a lot of technical bloggers on Twitter and through their blogs.  Most of them I have met through the Blog Engage community.  (Let me know if you need an invite, they are all fabulous and you can learn so much!)  I have learned so much from them.  I may not blog about a lot of technical stuff myself, but even parent bloggers need the know how to set up…

Two Follow Friday #FollowFriday Tools

I stopped doing Follow Friday on Twitter for awhile.  When you start following hundreds (in my case) or thousands (in some cases) of Twitter peeps, it can get to be a daunting task.  I always feel like I’m leaving someone out.  When I started using TweetDeck awhile ago, I would just go through my @ replies and suggest the people that I had interacted with for the week.  But then there are a lot of people that I may not…

Healthy Changes in Our Home: Raw Honey, Gluten-Free Foods, and Natural Skin Care

I wanted to mention a few things I have changed in our home: I started to use raw honey, gluten-free products, and non-toxic, natural sunblock and deodorant.

Raw honey:

After learning about the amazing properties of raw, local honey, that’s all I use now for my tea and when one of us has a soar throat. Honey has been proven to work just as well as cough medicine, so I always have it in the house.

The First Year: Mommy Part 1

My body hasn't had an easy run this past year. I housed a baby. Had said baby surgically removed. Had an open wound for most of my maternity leave. If that wasn't enough, my body decided to require another surgery. Throw in a few bulging disks (four!) in my neck and a fat baby and I think that is enough for one body for a years time.



Nope. This body has found a way to loose a large sum of weight. I gained thirty something pounds during my pregnancy. I'm fully aware that half of that… Continue

How to earn cash back while you shop

Let’s admit it, shopping is fun and so is spending money. That is, until you’re running low on money. But you can’t forget about the deals, discounts, coupons, and especially cash back programs that in essence pay you for shopping!

Think about it, a $10 off coupon essentially pays you $10 to buy the product. Even better, any cash back program is the best way to get paid for shopping. You can either earn points that go toward your next purchase or you can earn cash in the form of a…

5 Love Languages

With Valentine’s Day around the corner and references to the celebration of love and romance to be seen everywhere, I thought that it was timely to finally read this book that has been – repeatedly – recommended over the years. Before I had my two youngest daughters, a girlfriend mentioned the “must read”…

Duchess Tissue Box

The last couple of days have been really hard for me.  Hunter’s fit throwing is becoming more intense and we really never know when she will explode or if she will slip a knife off the counter and use it.  Colby and I know what we need to do to help her, but it is a small comfort after nights filled with tantrums.



We also got a puppy.  Indigo is a beautiful, energy filled, ball of fur, but she is a smart little Aussie left at home with me all day.  I’ve never had a puppy before.…

LittleMissMatched Socks - Solution for the Sock Lost in the Wash

Over the holidays my family went to Downtown Disney, a street of restaurants and shops that links Disneyland, the Disneyland Resort and California Adventure Park, to have lunch. While we were walking around my daughters noticed a store, LittleMissMatched that featured vibrant socks in the window and asked if they could go in. Why not? They can always use more socks, their sock drawer being… Continue

Winds of Change



I feel that when I came to this realization, it brought me mental wellness, it made me see life, my life, in a whole new light.

Recent interactions that lead me to writing this post

My girlfriend Wendy recently said to me, "V, I've got to wonder, how much more does God expect you to take? Is God waiting to see how much it will take to break you or trying to make you stronger?"



A post by my friend Christal:… Continue

Mommy's Make-up

When it comes to make-up I am no stranger. I’d say I exercise a reasonable restraint in resisting daily usage, but at the same time I enjoy the perfecting powers of foundation and blush on my tired mommy complexion. I never thought of my usage to be excessive or that it would have a negative influence on my daughters. But when my toddler started running up to me freshly done up with the make-up she took from her teenage Aunts room asking if she was “pwetty” I couldn’t help but wonder…. Was…
